Help Name that Electronic Device!
My new HTC Incredible came in the mail yesterday and I don’t think I could be any more excited if Gad Elmaleh came in the mail (but only if the shipping was free.)
This is not my phone, but engaget’s, because, unfortunately, out of all of the things he can do, he can’t take pictures of himself. Also, I don’t wear paisley ties. Mostly.
Anyway, now that I finally have a smartphone, I can be plugged into the intertubes like I’m on crack. It’s very exciting. The only thing that’s not exciting is that he doesn’t have a name yet, and I need your help.
I’ve named inanimate objects since I was very little. And, apparently, I’m not alone. I named my parent’s house Greta when I was in 7th grade, because it just felt right. She is so sunny and cheery and proper, that she couldn’t be anything else. My computer’s name is Iyar and my car is Cecilia.
So, I’m trying to come up with a name for this phone. I know he is masculine because phones are very rarely feminine. Even iPhones. I know that he gets stuff done quickly and quietly and is very powerful. He is also friendly. I, on the other hand, am slightly clinically unstable because phones don’t have human features. Neither do dogs.
However, I won’t apologize for being crazy, because names are important and this phone needs a name asap, and I need your help. Suggestions? Also, do you think the people at Nameberry would banish me if I started posting about this in the forums?
